Under normal circumstances the trail is a fairly stress-less event unless you have an abnormal fear of heights or there's been icy weather.
The trail is narrow at times and there are a few moderately steep climbs. The path can get icy in which case good shoes and sense of balance are a must. The views are wonderful and they change along with your position during the trek. Bring a camera.
There are bus shuttle stops along the way so if you want to you can catch a ride back to the village. Be advised that these shuttles do not keep to a schedule so you can be waiting a while.
